Patriots Waive DT Khyri Thornton

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Patriots have placed DT Khyri Thornton on waivers Thursday.

  • The Patriots also signed WR Chris Harper to their practice squad.

Thornton, 25, is a former third-round pick of the Packers back in 2014. However, he lasted just a little over a year in Green Bay before he waived a few weeks ago.

The Patriots wound up claiming him off waivers, but his time in New England was obviously short lived.

Thornton has three years remaining on his four-year, $2.22 million rookie contract that included a $563,252 signing bonus and was set to make a base salary of $523,000 for the 2015 season.

He has yet to appear in an NFL game
